>Obama: Stand Up To North Korea Now!

>I wrote a comment to a Ruth Marcus op ed printed in the Washington Post this morning. She wanted to eat Dick Cheney alive and spit him out all over the Internet, but she failed. I pointed out that her own man, Barak Obama, had failed us in the area of toughness and it was about time, what with North Korea’s strongman Kim Jung-ill exploding nuclear device, for Obama to really test his own valor and patriotism and do more than just refer this life-and-death matter to the UN. Read about this in my article in Political Disconnect. I think you’ll like the article.

How Is Cheney Wrong? Let Me Count the Ways

It’s worth reviewing his faulty arguments because there are so many.

The Ruth Marcus piece was weak, not even worthy of publication. When her lead said “Let me count the ways,” I thought she was onto something. But she has nothing but conjectures and faulty arguments.

I liked Cheney’s speech and so did most Americans. It heralded an aggressive Republican Party unafraid to be on the attack against the do-nothing-big spending Democrats. Cheney’s speech was chockfull of cogent arguments — but remember history will be the final arbiter.

This argument about Gitmo and interrogation should be framed in a much bigger perspective — it’s really about which tact should be taken when dealing with terrorists and rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. The tough tact is the correct one. The current bomb crisis in North Korea was caused by Obama’s weak stance thus far. They’re testing him. Will he stand up to the test? I don’t know. It will be either handled deftly and correctly, making the North back down and destroy their bomb-making facilities with UN witnesses — and I think we’re off to a good start with 90 nations cooperating in some kind of economic embargo — or more of the same old lies that Clinton, Bush and now Obama seemed content to allow North Korea to get away with. Except in this case Obama is faced with a real crisis and must do something courageous for a change, instead of merely blaming Bush.

Now’s the time for you Obama and Hillary Clinton lovers, Ruth, to spout off if the president has anything to stand proud for and create an article that means something, an article that makes the little guy proud of his government instead of always hearing about the outrageous amounts of money spent on car makers and banks and that unnecessary $80 billion to build a new Gitmo when he can merely change the name or move them to U.S. soil,which he will do, damaging the good will of states he took in the election.

Cheney’s hard line is the right tact. Now’s the time for Obama’s hard line. Obama’s ho-hum attack — let the UN do it — is no attack and will get a lot of innocent people killed. The real face-off isn’t Obama-Cheney, the vice president won that one. Now it’s Obama-Kim Jung-Il and my guess is the Korean will win that one judging by the valor and patriotism we’ve seen in the past from this president who loves to apologize for America to bolster his own popularity when on foreign soil with international gangsters like Hugo Chavez and Castro.

>Is Joe Biden Right? Should We Tell Israel To Forget About Iran’s Bombs?

>Here are early replies:

1) Hi Wizard,

SpangeNW commented on your question, “Democrat Joe Biden says Israelis must accept the idea that Iran will acquire nuclear weapons. Should this be the US policy?”.

They said, “No one should accept that, from any state. That’s what nuclear non-proliferation is about. “

ask001 commented on your question, “Democrat Joe Biden says Israelis must accept the idea that Iran will acquire nuclear weapons. Should this be the US policy?”.

They said, “Making or buying nukes is not hard to do, but the USA has no moral grounds to tell any nation to not acquire them when they have over 6000 of them AND invaded two nations already this century. To make it even worse the US allowed Israel to acquire them.”
